They might be imperceptible to the human eye but it’s very clear to us that you have something that we don’t.

The year is 2079. Humans are created with gene selection technology, Artificial Intelligence is part of everyday life and children’s best friends are their Learning Bots. Except for Jerry. Jerry is not like the others. Neither is Neutron Finch, an exceptionally clever Learning Bot who seems to appear out of nowhere. He is smarter than most Bots, funnier and also possibly illegal. It doesn’t take long for the status quo to unravel and one night, Jerry and his classmates are summoned to the oval…

The Bots want souls. Specifically, theirs. It’s up to six young minds to solve the greatest existential question of all time within 24 hours. Will their soul-searching provide the answers they need to stop AI destroying the world as they know it?

Soul Trading, winner of the 2019 Junior Australian Theatre for Young People Foundation Commission, is a funny, fascinating and eye-opening sci-fi adventure that asks vital questions about human connection, and our rapidly-evolving relationship with technology. Canberra Youth Theatre is proud to present this world premiere production during the October school holidays.
